This paper investigates the effect of the Delhi Metro on air pollution within Delhi and finds strong evidence to show that it has resulted in reductions of two important vehicular emissions - nitrogen dioxide and carbon monoxide.

This documents is prepared based on draft guide lines issued by MNRE for selection of 750 MW New grid connected Solar Power projects Under JNNSM Phase-II, Batch-I and may undergo changes.

This is the draft guidelines for setting up of 750 MW Grid Solar PV power projects with Viability Gap Funding (VGF) under Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM), Phase-II, Batch-I.

The State Government introduces the Solar Power Policy with the following objectives: Promoting generation of green and clean power in the state using solar energy; To meet the targets to be achieved countrywide under JNNSM; To put in place an appropriate investment climate, that could leverage the CDM; Productive use of the wastelands, thereby

JAMMU: Chief Minister, Omar Abdullah today said that harnessing of green energy has been given considerable fillip by his Government and generation of solar, thermal and wind power is receiving due attention alongwith launch of hydro electric projects in the State.

Omar Abdullah said that the interest of investors in the sector of New and Renewable Energy (N&RE) is highly encouraging and it will get further boost by the J&K State Solar Power Policy which is in offing.

Read text of draft Kerala Solar Energy Policy 2013 that calls for 500 MW of new solar by 2017 and 1.5 GW by 2030. It covers both solar electric and solar thermal technologies, calling for mandatory use of solar water heating in many buildings.

The Indian Institute of Technology, Madras (IIT-M) will not only coordinate part of the much-awaited national programme, Solar Thermal Project, but will also integrate the efforts of all the other IITs involved in the project.

The three-year Rs. 15 crore project, funded by the Department of Science and Technology, aims to use solar energy to find solutions to the country’s energy problems.

Finding itself on weak wicket, New Delhi will try to settle a complaint Washington filed in WTO challenging India’s policy on procuring equipments for its National Solar Mission.

Many commercial establishments are now switching to solar solutions for their captive power needs

Rising petroleum prices are expected to benefit renewable energy solution providers as commercial establishments that use diesel generator sets for their captive requirements may find solar power attractive. The city gas distribution (CGD) players too expect commercial establishments to switch from diesel to piped natural gas in the areas where power supply is unreliable.

The Tamil Nadu solar bid is “seriously flawed”, says the Solar Independent Power Producers Association (SIPPA).

In a petition sent just days before the last date for submission of bids (January 4), the Association requested the Tamil Nadu Electricity Regulatory Commission to “instruct” the Tamil Nadu’s state-owned electricity generation and distribution company, Tangedco, “to conduct a transparent and fair bidding process.”
